A $25 billion gas pipeline project has been suggested as a collaboration between Nigeria and Morocco.
The goal of the project is to utilize Nigeria’s natural gas.
The project also aims to provide many West African nations with 3 billion scfd of gas.
Nigeria and Morocco have made the decision to collaborate in order to diversify their respective energy economies.
The Nigeria-Morocco Gas Pipeline (NMGP) project, according to Mele Kyari, group chief executive officer of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPCL) Limited, is a very advanced notion and is essential to the growth of the West African economy.
During the project’s memorandum of understanding (MoU) signing event, which took place in Morocco on Saturday, the GCEO emphasized the value of both countries’ cooperation.
“The NMGP’s integration of West African economies is essential for the expansion of the local economy. The NNPCL is dedicated to making the project useful for all transit nations. He commented.
Aside from Mele Kyari, other speakers were Adama Djallo, general manager of Petrosen Holdings of Senegal, Tourad Abdoul Baghi, director general of SMH of Mauritania, and Amina Benkhadra, director general of the National Office of Hydrocarbons and Mines of Morocco (ONHYM).
